As promised, a peek into my kitchen

My husband made the star shutters and the mustard corner cabinet.

He also made the saltbox house night light that is on top of the corner cabinet.
The doll was a gift from Twigs.

He is one that likes to garbage pick and found this old stove...and it works!!

When we bought the house, it had a BRIGHT blue marble counter top and back splash.
We covered the counter with ceramic tile and did waynes coat as a back splash.

I was a longaberger collector once upon a time.

This old scale belonged to my father.

Twigs gave me this tobacco ladder and the rusty kitchen items when I went to see her one year.

My husband also made this shelve that holds some redware pieces.

Here is how I used my Wall Words

I had picked these up over the holidays at Khols for $14.00.
My intention was to place them on my wall but they wouldn't stick. So...I placed them on my mirror above the couch in the living room.
I love how they came out!!
Maybe I can inspire someone to do the same~Liz

A peek into my bathroom

Good morning everyone!!
As promised, here is a peek into my very small bathroom.
I have a crackled finish on my walls.

My husband made this chimney cabinet from wood he picked up garbage picking.
It's really tall and my bathroom is so small I couldn't get a picture of the front.

I need some suggestions PLEASE!!!!

I picked this up during the holidays at Gaberial Brothers.
For the price, I figured I could re-do something with it. I completely forgot I had this until today when I was cleaning my craft room. The pictures are like wrapping paper.
My question is:
What would YOU suggest I do with this?

I would like something primitive without changing the frame. I love how the wood is without me touching it. At the top of the frame are hinges (not sure if you can see)

Peek into my bedroom

Good afternoon everyone!!
I was asked to post more pictures of my home so here is my bedroom.
I wanted it to be shabby and a relaxing place to retire for the night.
And..the hubby doesn't mind the pink!! Enjoy~Liz

Above my bed is a window that we removed the glass from and I did a crackle finish.
We then placed chicken wire behind it, nailed on some old rusty square head nails to hang items, and I stapled on a pip berry swag full of spring colors.
Sorry it looks so wrinkled...took it out of the dryer and threw it on the bed!

My kitty Bella loves to sit in the sun on my dresser.

We also own two big dogs and on the floor is one of their pillows.

Corner fireplace my husband made

Here is a closer pictures of the mantle my husband made for the corner of our living room.
I was asked to post a closer picture of it.

This is how the top looks.
I normally have it decorated but moved the items so you can view the way it was placed in the corner. I picked that sign up for $2.99 at Gabriel Brothers (love that store) it's by Primitives by Kathy.

Raggedies, Snowman and Gingerbread..OH MY!!
